NINTH YEAR-NO- i:.M. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. WEDNESDAY. AUGUST �. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS K1NSI.OK ltKOTIIUKS---FU1SLISIIERS CURRENT COMMENT. The suggestion that Geuoral HattingB sliouM be made Direotor-General of the Worlds Fair at Chicago is an exc.cllont one. Ho ban iLe energy, the intolligonoe r.nd tbo character, which are needed in such a post, aud the Westerners will be lucky if tbey oan obtain his services. DimiXG the month of July, just past, the receipts from customs were five millions in excess of the samo month last year. This means that Importers have increased their importations largely, in anticipation of ihe McKinley bill. Of some goods a two years' supply has been brought into the country. A Li, good citizens in the land should bo pleased to learn that the Republicans and the Union Labor party of Arkansas are making a vigorous campaign and expect to carry the State. Democratic rule has beon so oppressive and election methods so bloody that the credit of the State has suffered very seriously. A writer of a communication iu the New York World can see no reason why thoro should bo any dissatisfaction and complaint over the erection of stables within a stone's throw of Grant's tomb, because the hotel to whion they were at-t ached was built before be was buried there aud because at any rate "tho new stables aro as handsomo architecturally ao tho vault iu which the great Gonoral's remains are doposited." A shout of joy went out of |every Democratic throat when it was loarnod Senator Plumb had voted with the opposition on a tariff question. It was hailed as a break in the ranks of the taiiff men. At the same time when Democrats pat a Republican on his baok and cry "good boy" it is timo for that boy to havo some regard for the route bo is travelling. KEMMLER EXECUTED TO-DAY The Electrotbaiiy of the Murderer Took Place at an Early Hour This Morning. PROMINENT WITNESSES PRESENT. Mi:. William V. McKean, of the Philadelphia Lctbjer, in an open lttter makes tho statement that President Harrison has paid $3,000 for the cottago now occupied by him at Cape May Point, as well as $2,-QOO for its furuiture, and that the geutle-mon who had raised the fund for the purpose of making the oottage a gift to Mrs. Harrison have received their money back. There has been a good deal of gossip and criticism about tho part which the President has played in this transaction, but he has very wisely done the right thing in deciding to make himself the owner of the property by a regular purchase in oash. Ouit squadron of evolution has come home, dropping its anchors in New York harbor a few days ago. It is not large, only four ships, but these are new and represent all that is now and efficient in modern naval architecture. During the nine months it was abroad, it oruised nearly seventeen thousand miles, viBited some of tho most renowned naval stations of Europe, was plaoed side by side with the ohoicest specimens of Old World war ships and wherever it was seen won the enoomiums of naval exports. True, the four ships and tho fifteen hundred men on board mado a poor showing, bo far as aggregate strength was concerned, alongside the European navies, but tbey wore a samplo of what wo caa do and are doing.

Pocnllar Experience or a .Man on the Field of Rattle. *'I have heard of men being paralyzed by a wound and unable to move," said a well known prominent Maine office holder to a Lewistown Journal writer, "at-d I believe it. I know that there has been many oases of the kind, and one of them in par-ficluar has such a personal twist that I have good roason to remembor. "It was at tbo battle of Chantilly, in the early part of tbe fight. We had approached a low, rambUng fence-a Virginia fence, as they were called-and I had my gun through it, and was doing what service I could. I saw the splinter fly from a piece of that fence under the impetus of a ball from the enemy. In the lightning flash of the flying wood I seemed to find time to dodge, and there was a quick pain like the searing of a hot iron, and the Bplinter was through my bat band, and along my scalp, penetrating it, but not injuring tbe skull. "The blow was severe and stunned me, and I remember as well my last look at the scene-the fighting troops, the smoke, the battle and the trampling men. I fell back, my legs half doubled up beneath me, and in a moment my strength was gone and I was powerless. I saw everything. Men fell upon me; men trampled on me; horsesrearodaround me. Tho battle was on all sides. My wits were clear; my brain unclouded; there I was, dying a death momentarily, alive, yet doad and suffering more tortures than I thought life could have. I lay there perhaps half an hour- every moment a year of agony-when I felt someone's hand on my collar, and I was dragged out and turned on my face, where I lay for a moment as some one rifled my cartridge box. The motion saved me. My pulse seemed to stir, my heart beat, my will to re-exert itself, and in a few minutes I was myself. The wound was so small that I staunched it with my handkerchief, and in half an hour I was woll as ever. The Normal ScBool Catalogue.

THE SHIP SAVED AS BI A HIEA0LE, A Ilnge Iceberg Dtad Ahead of the Veaaal Breaks Int. Three Pieces, One of Which Uoiuea Up Underneath the 8blp. Liftins it Completely Onlo/the Water-The Fa�-�encer. Terror-Stricken, Halifax, N. S., Ang. 5.-The steamer Portia, which arrived here joslcrday from St. John's, N. P., had a very narrow escape from destruction on her way from Pillay'a Island. On July 30, when near Fogo Head, a huge ioeberg was noticed dead ahead. Tbe steamer sailed close alongside of it, and, while paB&ing the glittering mass, a terrible report was heard, which shook the ship, and the berg broke into three pieces, each pieoe going under the water with a roar and crash like thunder. The steamer slid up on tbe third pieoe, which tipped over, holding her for awhile dear out of water. For a time it looked to all on board as though sudden death was inevitable, bat in a moment the sea, whioh had hitherto been as plaoid an a mill pond, suddenly became a surging mass. This driving sea rushed down npon the Portia and lifted her off the ioe into the water. AFTEIl THE COLLISION. On examining the ship it was found that stanohions in the saloon bad been displaced and bent, and the under girders of the dining table smashed. Captain Ash was at his post on the bridge at the time of the accident. After tbe report he saw a third of tho berg tip over and slowly rise from the water. The engines were stopped. Had this order not been promptly executed, the steamer would have gone down when lifted from the ice by the seas. The excitement among the passengers was intense. Tbe Captain and chief officer! Bbouted immediately to the passengers to keep cool. Tbe terrified passengers grew calmer, and almost ioimediately afterwards the Portia was in clear water and on I of danger. BpW OF THE SHIP DAMAGED. The bow of the ship was damaged by the ice, and a portion of the forward apartment was flooded. Tbe passengers speak in tbe highest terms of the judgment and oalmness displayed by Captain Ash, who, it will be remembered, was a member of tbe Greely relief expedition. Tbe passengers presented the Captain with an address. Mr. Forthoote, the chief officer, was in his birth when the ioeberg broke. He informed a reporter today that he was startled by lumps of ice coming through a port-hole into his room. SUICIDE AT NIAGARA. A Man Snppoeed to Have Gone Over the Falle to His Death. Niagara Falls, Aug. 5.-About 6 o'olock this morning Officer MoMullen of tbe reservation polioe force found a brown saok coat, a blaok vest and a derby hat on the bank of the river in Prospect Park, about 300 feet above th� American Falls.

In the smoking room of a Pallsaan ear the other day a number of strangers, thrown into temporary comradeship by tbe exigencies of travel, were disouasing current topics. Politics came op of eonrse, and it turned oat that almost all the gen-temen were Democrats or disgruntled Republicans. There was only one of tbam who had any good word to say for Harrison's administration, bat he was very olever, very fluent, very quickwitted, and gave baok as good as he got. Presently Wanamaker's name was mentioned. The single good Republican relapsed at oooe into silence. All unpleasant expletives were showered on the/Postmaster-General, and, there being no dissenting voice, they were unanimously indorsed. Presently the stranger got up to leave the smoking-room. He was a man of medium height, olean shaved, with a good deal of hair, a keen bright eye and something of the air of a yankee minister. Aa he passed Into the body of the car he met the porter, and, slipping a quarter of a dollar into bis hand, he whispered: "If the gentlemen in the smoking-room ask you who I am, say John Wanamaker." "Yes, sab," aald the grinning porter, pocketing his fee. And, In fact, when the porter happened into the the smoking compartment a few minutes later, one of the party causally asked: "Do you know who was the gentleman that just left?" "The gentleman with a smooth face, sab?" "Yea." "That's Mr. John Wanamaker, sab." Tbe answer of course threw the whole company into a state ot consternation. They were not a whit more comfortable when "Mr. Wanamaker" re-entered the oompartmect. Every one apologised, and tbe honorable gentleman graoiously pardoned them all, remarking between puffs at a choice Havana that he was so often tbe subject of calumny that he had grown quite used to it. At last, when they came within view of the terminal city, and as all were preparing to leave the smoker, the Btranger got up, faced the company, and said with a merry smile: "Gentlemen, if you were more familiar with the personnel ol Harrison's cabinet you would know tbat John "Wanamaker never smokes." Before they had recovered from this second surprise tbe Btranger had disappeared from the front platform.-Illustrated American. Water From the Canal.
